Have you ever had to sacrifice something in order to better the quality of your family’s life?
John did. He gave a up a big city job in order to become a Stay-at-Home Parent. It ended up being a harder job, but it definitely had better benefits.
About 8 years ago, I found myself in a similar situation as John’s. I was managing a Bank Branch and working between 50-60 hours a week. I was also pregnant expecting my first child.
My husband and I had discussed the possibility of me staying at home with our son but we also worried about our finances. However, as I got closer to the end of the pregnancy my anxiety grew when I thought of leaving my newborn to go back to work.
My husband was concerned as well, and we decided it was time to make a few tough decisions.
After some financial and lifestyle changes, I was able to stay at home with my child and “Keep Good Going”. We improved our quality of life and learned to shop more wisely, go without certain “not so necessary” items, and look for other income sources.
Have you ever made a choice that changed your life and your family’s future for the better? Would you like to make a change in your life similar to that of John’s, the Stay-at-Home Super Dad?
I am happy to say that I am still able to stay at home, and I realize those tough choices really weren’t that hard at all.
